A Step too Far
12 April 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

The kindest thing I can say about `Never Come Back' is that it must be intended as homage to `The Thirty-nine Steps'. With its dashing leading man never more than half a step ahead of a suave but ruthless villain (a well-cast James Fox) in an exciting pursuit across England with a beautiful blonde so skeptical of our hero's innocence, and a baffling `maguffin' I was reminded at every cut and turn of John Buchan's classic Boy's Own Adventure novel.

Because Timothy Bateson is a handsome hero and the pace never slackens I intended to recommend you to see this if you haven't seen `The Thirty-nine Steps'. But instead I have to say that if you've never seen Hitchcock's classic from 1935 do so at the first opportunity. You have a treat in store!

Footnote: Interesting to see Martin Clunes, well-known British comedian from the hit TV series `Men Behaving Badly' in an early, straight role.
